One Hundred and Fourty Seven

As per AllArduinos table in Google docs maintained by Jeff, this the actual number of Arduino platforms available! Each of them is fulfilling specific requirements, in terms of size, price, performances, options, etc. I love the MinimalDuino from the author of this compilation work: I find the RuggeDuino very interesting too: “The Ruggeduino is a […]

Tips and Tricks (14)

Previous Tip & Trick Smash the miror! Balau wrote an interesting post on “Programming Arduino Uno in pure C”. This is a pretty good starting point for those who would like to get one step further from Arduino to the whole AVR world! Here is a look and feel about blink sketch in “pure C” […]

[Javascript required to view Flash movie, please turn it on and refresh this page] PlainGLCD is a fully featured library for driving Graphic Liquid Cristal Displays (GLCD). This library includes the following functions: – ClearScreen(color) – DrawAnyLine(x0, y0, x1, y1, color) – […]

Arduino story

Fantastic story…

Cool Stuff of the Day

Card Radio “Card RadioThe internals are housed in a simple card structure which can be recycled at the end of the product’s life. The radio is one of the major sources of music worldwide and there is nothing that can replace a conventional radio. The radios are back into fashion and people are going for […]

MicroHTR (Part 5)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Few more lines of code are required to build a fully operational PID. In the case of a PWM control, we need to get an output value ranging from 0 to 100% (Duty cycle). But other applications may require different ranges. That is the reason […]

Direct Digital Synthesizer (DDS) (Part 5)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 This is an update in the status of PlainDDS library. After revising the code and trying some suggestions made by Arduinoos visitors, I performed some intensive tests from which I have been able to draw some conclusions: – The bits setting must be executed as quickly as possible in order to keep the […]

Blog Of The Day

I defiinetly like the style of: Excellent pictures, clean style, explicit code and useful comments. Well done! However I disagree with the conclusive statement from the author “Take any electronics DIY project you have seen on the web… Instead of documenting how it is made, we document how each part of it is made.”. Your […]

MicroHTR (Part 4)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 In the PI mode, the P term cares about the real time changes while the I term cares about the history of changes. Athough the PI mode is very effective in most situations, it fails to cover waht we could call the prediction of changes. […]

Fast Signal Sampling (Part 12)

Part 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 11, 12 Too bad Marcel, you experienced an unexpected flaw which drove me to rework the PlainADC library… There was a bug in the data acquisition parameters set and reset mechanism. Also, I reintroduced the single shot acquisition function… nammed at GetSingleUInt16Data […]
